What is Xref ?

Online candidate referencing

Xref automates the candidate referencing process via an easy to use, mobile-ready, fully reportable, cloud-based platform. Xref addresses one of the biggest pain points in the HR industry - the way candidate reference checks are collected. Traditionally this has been a very manual, phone-based process, driven by the employer.

COLLECT TRUSTED DATA

Use Xref to combat reference fraud, collect more meaningful referee feedback and leverage insightful analytics.

PROTECT YOUR BUSINESS

Include additional compliance to your recruitment method. Xref protects employers from privacy and discriminatory breaches.

Our Clients

We are now using xref with a number of RPO clients across the region and we are very happy with the results to date. We have found our turn around times are consistently under 36 hours and the depth of feedback on candidates from referees is excellent. Also, because the reference request is sent to the referee from the candidate, the response rates are very high at over 95%. Our recruiters love the tool because of the ease, efficiency and thoroughness with which it allows them to do this very critical task

Kimberley Hubble - Global Head of RPO, Hudson

Xref has allowed us to structure and streamline the referencing process across all our retail stores. It's been a huge time saver for us and allows our Store Managers to focus on running their stores rather than collecting references. Xref is easy to use and it takes seconds to request references for a candidate. Not only this, Xref has added a layer of security to our reference process and we have been able to greatly reduce the risk of fraudulent hires at both store and head office level.

Anthony Dawson - Recruitment Manager, APG & Co

The Westpac Group has partnered with Xref for over four years, enabling our recruitment team to collect candidates' reference checks in the most efficient and secure way possible. Most recently, we've successfully completed a full integration of Xref with our applicant tracking system, Oracle's Taleo Enterprise. Implementing Xref with Taleo will see a significant reduction in our team's average time taken to fill job vacancies, giving Westpac a competitive advantage in talent acquisition. At the same time it will ensure our recruitment process maintains the highest levels of compliance and governance.

Adam Buxton, Senior Manager Strategy and Practice, Westpac Group

Our in-house team has been using Xref for high volume roles, for just over a year and they love it.  It has allowed us to automate what has previously been a very manual process, reducing the time involved in hiring but allowing that time to be spent on improving upfront sourcing and selection initiatives.  As a hospitality and entertainment business, a large portion of the people we’re contacting are from businesses that, understandably, operate outside of ‘normal office hours’.  Using Xref sees us getting close to 50% of our references completed overnight making for a more efficient turn around at the final stage of employment.

Amanda Tolley - Group Manager, Talent Acquisition and Development, Skycity

Our recruitment team loves using Xref. They have been really impressed by both the number of references that are returned in under 30 hours, as well as by the responses and insights that the questions provoke from the referees. Using Xref is definitely saving them time and is allowing them to focus on other tasks, secure in the knowledge that reference checking is being taken care of.

Jake Pickard - Head of Resourcing, Australian Super

Xref is a fantastic solution for a busy in-house recruitment team. We have been very pleased with the efficiency Xref have brought to our reference checking process. The time we save in the reference check process frees up time for our recruiters to focus on the value add areas.

Annika Wilson - Talent Acquisition Manager, AECOM

Xref has saved our business a huge amount of time & resource in what is typically a heavy manual process.  By automating & centralising the referencing process within our HR & Recruitment team we have given our hiring managers their time back to focus on more strategic tasks.  The team are extremely happy with Xref.  To request a reference takes them seconds & typically we will receive detailed, honest, reference reports back from referees in under 30 hours.

Melanie J Allibon - Group Executive, Human Resources

Using Xref to collect pre-employment references frees up time for more strategic talent acquisition. Qantas has also been able to reduce the possibility of reference fraud, increasing security around the validity of referees. Most recently the Xref team provided the expertise required to integrate their platform with our Oracle Taleo applicant tracking system. Xref is now fully embedded into a seamless, end-to-end recruitment workflow allowing Qantas to minimise time-to-hire whilst ensuring consistency and governance across our hiring process.

Alex Colley, Talent Acquisition, Qantas Careers

We commenced using Xref as we wanted to customise our checks for each area of the business, reduce costs and streamline our recruitment process. Our expectations were far exceeded with turn around time being reduced with most checks coming back within 24 hours, our costs have been halved and the detail provided by referees is far better than expected. Our in-house recruitment team love this product. Xref is really simple to use, we receive quick responses as referees can respond on their mobile out of business hours and provide responses that are detailed and thorough. Xref speeds up the recruitment process and delivers a cost effective, high quality solution.

Deborah Grace - Senior Manager, HR Services, News Corp

Xref immediately understood our need to drive efficiency across recruitment. They delivered on-site training to our recruiters, set up a full production trial of the system and then provided us with a review that included detailed ROI analysis. The business case was simple, Xref saves time, saves money and helps protect our business. Our recruitment team love it - it's easy to use, they receive more detailed references and Xref gives them back their time to focus on finding great talent. Xref delivers long-overdue innovation to HR and recruitment.
